A dip in Delhi's air quality has now become a matter of concern for the BCCI as well. But Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is confident that the pollution won't affect the match which is scheduled for Sunday 3rd November. The BCCI took permission from Delhi Pollution Control Board to host the game and went ahead only after getting a green signal. Though the air quality was better this time around as compared to the last 3 years, the quality is said to worsen later this week. In December 2017, Sri Lankan players faced breathing difficulties during a Test match and the play was halted several times. Several independent health organisations including Care For Air & My Right To Breathe have written to BCCI president Sourav Ganguly to move the game to a different venue.
